Excited!!!God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)God’s gun theme reminds me of part of “River Mission” from Battlefield 2: Modern Combat OST. I think Lorne was an additional composer on that score aswell (excellent OST btw)"It's good shit lieutenant" The principle is based on Thomas Newman's Bond.  "Take back what's ours" and "the truth" is Ad astrahonnestly, I do get why people refer to MW2, but to be honest, it's not the same.  With the amount of time I heard that score, I can say that it uses the same drums, and a pattern that is quite similar to the one used in MW2, but it is not a copy/paste.  It's no different to me than Junkie XL re-using the same pattern of drum in all of his recent scores since Mad Max.  When it comes from the same composer, I guess it's normal to have works that parts that similar from a score to another.  Just think of John Murphy who re-use his powerful theme from Sunshine in a lot of his scores (28 weeks later, kick-ass, etc).   <br><br>Actually I'm quite glad he re-used the themes from Mancina as that was, to me at least, a big miss for BB2 even though Rabin and Jablonsky did a great job.  It's like doing a James Bond movie without the Bond theme.  It might be good, but it miss the little something that gel everything together. ;)  I really like what Lorne did on this one.  Even though he re-used the theme, he made them his own, in a similar way he did with MI Fallout, while sometime paying homage to the original ones. ;)  My 2 cents.
Not really familiar with either Mancina’s BB score or MW2, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s like an old-school MV score filtered through Lorne’s sound. The main tune (which I’m guessing is Mancina’s) is a lot of fun, particularly when paired with the choir. <br><br>And as for Ad Astra, the villain motif in “Take Back What’s Ours” sounds like it was directly lifted from the space scenes of that score.can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?can I see the clip? is it on YouTube?I love the score. It is action packed and to the point.<br><br>I saw his orchestra clips as well but I wonder why he actually spends the money and effort for orchestra when the end product sounds (as usually) 100 percent sample library. All the dynamics of real players are gone in the final mix so why bother with orchestra at all...I'm highly disappointed by the score... Lorne went the very easy way and recycled the MW2 score as well as the Mancina theme in almost every track. Like seriously... the only thing u here is MW2, Main Theme and lot of rustle-synth score. 1/10! No effort went in this score and I dont say that often.
As for Ad Astra, unfortunately i can't hear anything from Ad Astra aswell :/ It's just MW2 mixed with Mancinas themes for me. And the cues from MW2, they aren't just drums, all the guitars, melodies, vibes, even the choir or the voices are included. The above mentioned cues from MW2 are not complete, there are plenty of them, but these will give you the idea of what we've mentioned. Again, i'm not mad, i'm happy that a wider audience can hear these cues, but then again, on MW2 they sounded better and fresher than on the BB3 score (i mean the quality of the recordings - you can hear the cues and instruments more directly. On the BB3 score it sounds like being in a bathroom hearing to the MW2 score). And as i said earlier, i would like to understand or know what Lorne thought about using all these cues. Time pressure? Unused opportunity for a wider audience? And then again that synth-sound even using a real orchestra :/@ Mr Tweedy:<br><br>MW2 has hundred of cues, which has all the special atmosphere and sound-effects, but try listen to these cues to understand what i and others mean:<br><br>- Guerilla Tactics <br>- Guerilla<br>- Contingency<br>- Breach<br>- Retreat and Reveille<br><br>Funny thing, play the cue "Guerilla Tactics" from MW2 and let Shazam try to find out what track that is. It shows me as "Lorne Balfe - We're Dangerous People" from BB3 :DI really like this score!<br>Sure he used Mancina's Theme, that's allright cool, I don't hear anything similar to Ad Astra....don't know why somebody compare this score with Ad Astra....<br>That MW2 sounds are very great, he don't copy himself, he just used the Drums, what's definitely be OK!!<br><br>I don't know why people always want to compare scores....Everybody use his own Temp Music sometimes, that's normal!Please could you give me the exact name of the track from MW2 that is used in BB3? I’d like to compare both!I love Lorne´s music and all, but I am genuinely wondering, why they decided to re-use MW2 so much in the score
as for the drums, yes, i would understand. but the orchestra? you're recording the strings from a real orchestra, so why the downgrade in sound-quality?Because that parts are sampled drums and there are no real?i don't know what to think about the use of mw2. i mean, i love his work for mw2, it's TOO good to be just a score for a game, a wider audience should hear this, so i'm kind of happy to hear some parts of it here. BUT somehow, it's kind of a lazy move just to copy that 1:1. some cues are untouched and some cues are layered with some themes of mancina. i would be interested to know what was he thinking while doing this? <br><br>i followed his video uploads on his social media channels, where he showed some snippets of the orchestra and i truly loved that. but while hearing at the score, i'm dissappointed to hear the quality as it sounds like synth. i mean that typically Balfe synth sound quality. if he uses truly orchestra, than it's a shame and pitty that it sounds like synths in the end. he needs a better recording or mixing or whatever to get rid of that synth-quality-design and having the true-orchestra feelingMancina's theme + Ad Astra + MW:2= Bad boys for Life.Please enlighten me on how Bad Boys 3 sounds the same as Lego Batman or Genius: Picasso

"Joker Crashes the Party" - Wasn't that the name of a cue from TDK? Was this an inside joke?

Which Balfe scores, in your opinion, are his best? I’ve just gotten into his stuff recently with Lego Batman and would like a good starting point with him, thanks!


Max Potcats2018-01-04 13:05:06
I really liked Son Of God (Faith is amazing), Terminator Genisys is nice too.


Macejko2018-01-04 13:25:10
Beyond: Two Souls all the way.


mpolonest123 2018-01-04 14:22:38
Beyond: Two Souls and Blackwood are probably my top two from him.


Edmund Meinerts2018-01-04 15:09:34
From what I've heard, I'd say my top picks from Balfe would be Lego Batman, Home and Beyond: Two Souls. But like Zanelli, I feel Balfe is a composer who does some of his best work in additional music moreso than his solo scores, so if I was making a Balfe playlist I'd definitely also add some of his contributions to Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, Kung Fu Pandas 2 and 3, Megamind and Inception.


Olive2018-01-04 16:02:04
Nothing...
Just kidding!
Animation movies (Lego, Home, Kung Fu Panda, Penguins and Megamind) and video games scores (Beyond, Assassins Creed, Modern Warfare). Yeah, I like also some other things, but nothing too remarkable like those above.


Hybrid Soldier2018-01-04 16:47:12
Ironclad, Harry's Arctic Heroes, Skylanders - Giants...


Richard2018-01-04 17:29:14
AC3 ,Terminator Genius and Ghost In The Shell are mine.

I believe Hans is writing the main theme with Lorne and Lorne is the Doug the score to all of the episodes . The super bowl spot looks amazing . Frost Nixon was a unique score from them both .

There seems some negative comments about this score but I think it is great because it is fun but also with great serious overtones. For a change , the music was as important as ththe storyline for a change . I was actually shocked to see Lorne's name at the end because I had never heard his music this good. seems like he was allowed to go wild and enjoy writing . Enjoyed this soundtrack more than anything in a long time so well done


John2017-02-20 09:25:34
Onlyon this forum ! I think it's amazing and the music makes the film . I have always been a fan of Hans music but now lorn music is beating everyone's music for animation . Really great and best batman score since batman begins


Edmund Meinerts2017-02-20 12:05:11
"now lorn music is beating everyone's music for animation."

Sorry. As good as this score is, Lorne still has a long long way to go before he reaches John Powell's level.


John2017-02-20 12:34:49
Sorry but !!! Edmund you seem to be in the minority ! Social media is constantly
Mentioning the score in reviews . I realize I'm new to the new site but I follow Ihim on twitter and Facebook and everyone seems to be congratulating on the soundtrack . Apart from you ! Anyway - it's fun and I close my eyes and sit back and listen to it and enjoy A what else can I ask for .


Edmund Meinerts2017-02-20 14:41:18
Good for him! It's great that this score is getting such acclaim. It's a very fun and enjoyable one. But go out and ask those same people if they like this more or How to Train Your Dragon and then come back and tell me what they say.

Not just Powell but Zimmer too! The Prince of Egypt, Kung Fu Panda and The Lion King! Another great Powell animated score is Shrek, which he shares with Gregson-Williams :D

Don't know why everyone is actually raving about this score ? Have listened to it once and I haven't felt the urge to listen to it again. It's a fun score for sure. But saying it's the best score for an animated movie since a long time is a bit too much credit for me... But hey everyone can like whatever they want. Love the first minute of The Arrival of Robin though.


Edmund Meinerts2017-02-14 12:34:09
I kind of agree with you. It's a fun score but the level of accolades it's getting would have you think it's the second coming of Jesus Christ.


isildur2017-02-14 14:08:40
It's not just fun score, it's fun "Batman" score. Sure many of us loved Hans' Dark Knight scores but this kind of addresses more aspects of Batman's & Joker's characters not just their broody nature and completely insane unpredictability that was there in Nolan's movies. Also the contrasting comic nature of the film helps the score to be enjoyed on a different level.

Of course it's not the greatest animation score. But when combined with the kind of popularity Batman & Lego movies have, it's just that more people are talking about it. And I, for one, am glad Lorne is getting some much deserved attention.


Mike2017-02-14 19:33:21
